^{24}Mg to

^{209}Bi are simultaneously considered below 200 MeV within the framework of the optical model. The results calculated using the derived global optical potential are compared with the existing experimental data. The reliability of the global optical potential is further tested by predicting the elastic scattering data out of the mass and energy ranges, within which the global potential parameters are determined, and reasonable results are also obtained.

^{94}Y reactions have been measured in the neutron energy range of 13.5-14.8 MeV by means of the activation technique. The neutrons were produced through the D-T reaction. A high-purity germanium detector with high energy resolution was used to measure the induced γ activities. In combination with the nuclear reaction theoretical models, the excitation curves concerning the above-mentioned eight nuclear reactions within the incident neutron energy range from the threshold to 20 MeV were gained by adopting the nuclear theoretical model program system Talys-1.9. The obtained experimental cross sections were analyzed and compared with the experimental data taken from published literatures and the results calculated by using Talys-1.9. The results show that our experimental results agree with some previous experimental values as well as those of theoretical excitation curve at the corresponding energies, and the theoretical excitation curves obtained can match the experimental data well in general.

The heavy quark effective theory vastly reduces the weak-decay form factors of hadrons containing one heavy quark. Many works attempt to apply this theory to the multiple heavy quarks hadrons directly.

Weakly bound states often occur in nuclear physics. To precisely understand their properties, the coupling to the continuum should be worked out explicitly. In a first step, we use a simple nuclear model in the continuum and on a lattice to investigate the influence of a third particle on a loosely bound state of a particle and a heavy core. Our approach is consistent with the Lüscher formalism.

**Abstract:**

The problem of the flat limits of the scalar and spinor fields on the de Sitter expanding universe is considered in the traditional adiabatic vacuum and in the new rest frame vacuum we proposed recently where the frequencies are separated in the rest frames as in special relativity. It is shown that only in the rest frame vacuum the Minkowskian flat limit can be reached naturally for any momenta while in the adiabatic vacuum this limit remains undefined in the rest frames where the momentum vanishes. An important role is played by the phases of the fundamental solutions in the rest frame vacuum which must be regularized in order to obtain the desired Minkowskian flat limits. This procedure fixes the phases of the scalar mode functions and Dirac spinors leading to their definitive expressions derived here. The physical consequence is that in the rest frame vacuum the flat limits of the one-particle operators are just the corresponding operators of special relativity.

We attempt to clarify several aspects concerning the recently presented four-dimensional Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity. We argue that the limiting procedure outlined in [Phys. Rev. Lett. 124, 081301 (2020)] generally involves ill-defined terms in the four dimensional field equations. Potential ways to circumvent this issue are discussed, alongside some remarks regarding specific solutions of the theory. We prove that, although linear perturbations are well behaved around maximally symmetric backgrounds, the equations for second-order perturbations are ill-defined even around a Minkowskian background. Additionally, we perform a detailed analysis of the spherically symmetric solutions, and find that the central curvature singularity can be reached within a finite proper time.

We revisit the hyperon weak radiative decays in the framework of the non-relativistic constituent quark model. This study confirms the nonlocal feature of the hyperon weak radiative transition operators which are dominated by the pole terms, and an overall self-consistent description of the available experimental data for the Cabibbo-favored hyperon weak radiative decays is achieved. It provides a natural mechanism for evading the Hara theorem, where sizeable parity-violating contributions can come from the intermediate orbital excitations. Cancellations between pole terms also explain significant SU(3) flavor symmetry breaking manifested by the experimental data. We also discuss several interesting selection rules arising from either the electromagnetic or the weak interaction vertices. These features suggest nontrivial relations among different hyperon decays.

We investigate the evolution of abundance of the asymmetric thermal Dark Matter when its annihilation rate at chemical decoupling is boosted by the Sommerfeld enhancement. Then we discuss the effect of kinetic decoupling on relic abundance of asymmetric Dark Matter when the interaction rate depends on the velocity. Usually the relic density of asymmetric Dark Matter is analyzed in the frame of chemical decoupling. Indeed after decoupling from the chemical equilibrium, asymmetric Dark Matter particles and anti--particles were still in kinetic equilibrium for a while. It has no effect on the case of

*s*−wave annihilation since there is no temperature dependence in this case. However, the kinetic decoupling has impacts for the case of

*s*− and

*p*−wave annihilations. We investigate in which extent the kinetic decoupling affects the relic abundances of asymmetric Dark Matter particle and anti--particle in detail. We found the constraints on the cross section and asymmetry factor by using the observational data of relic density of Dark Matter.

The transonic phenomenon of black hole accretion and the existence of the photon sphere are the characteristics of strong gravitational fields near a black hole horizon. In this work, we study spherical accretion flow onto a general parametrized spherically symmetric black hole spacetimes. For this purpose, we analyze the accretion process of various perfect fluids, such as the isothermal fluid of ultra-stiff, ultra-relativistic, and sub-relativistic types and polytropic fluid, respectively. The influences of extra parameters beyond the Schwarzschild black hole in the general parameterized spherically symmetric black hole on the flow behaviors of the above-mentioned test fluids are studied in detail. In addition, by studying the accretion of ideal photon gas, we further discuss the correspondence between the sonic radius of accreting photon gas and the photon sphere for the general parameterized spherically symmetric black hole. Some possible future extensions of our analysis are also discussed.

^{8}Be nucleus states, both clustered and non-clustered, is performed over a wide range of the excitation energies. The quantities which characterize the degree of the alpha-clustering of these states: spectroscopic factors, cluster form factors as well as the alpha-decay widths are computed in the framework of an accurate ab initio approach developed. Other basic properties of

^{8}Be spectrum: the binding and excitation energies, mean values of the isospin are calculated simultaneously. In the majority of instances the results of the computations turn out to be in a good agreement with the spectroscopic data. A number of predictions are made and corresponding verification experiment is proposed. Prospects of the developed approach for nuclear spectroscopy are demonstrated.

Motivated by the problem of expanding single-trace tree-level amplitude of Einstein-YangMills theory to the BCJ basis of Yang-Mills amplitudes, we present an alternative expansion formula in the gauge invariant vector space. Starting from a generic vector space consisting of polynomials of momenta and polarization vectors, we define a new sub-space as gauge invariant vector space by imposing constraints of gauge invariant conditions. To characterize this sub-space, we compute its dimension and construct an explicit gauge invariant basis from it. We propose an expansion formula in the gauge invariant basis with expansion coefficients being linear combinations of Yang-Mills amplitude, manifesting the gauge invariance of both expansion basis and coefficients. With help of quivers, we compute the expansion coefficients via differential operators and demonstrate the general expansion algorithm by several examples.
